and chris christie, two republican governors negating to call governors who are democrats overseeing tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people who could be impacted. was that a bad quote-unquote call no pun intended to make, chip? >> no, i don't think so. everybody is on the same page here. this storm is historic, and we don't know exactly. there's no precedent to this. the president set the right tone in his conference. i think governor romney called the two republican governors that he knew and he's friends with. he's been through it before but on a smaller level in massachusetts when he was governor. it's important for them to get out. i don't think it's a bad political call. the only thing you can do bad over the next seven days is be too political on this. that's the real question. >> let me quickly say because i know keith wants to get in on this. you call your friends. your friends are the american people, not just those with republican governors with all due respect? >> i don't think anybody was questioning this was a partisan phone call. >> that's what i was

do. but the people who are -- and this is repeating the president's appeal, what chris christie has said, mike bloomberg, the appeal to people who are refusing to evacuate because they are putting first responders in danger and as i'm looking at the pictures of you, ron, the shape of that beach along the jersey shore is never going to be the same. this is going to have to be restored in some way because the enormous erosion already is being washed away in front of our eyes. >> andrea, this ocean, the shore here, extends out about 100 yards. it did yesterday at least. it doesn't anymore. how much of that is going to be destroyed and washed away, is unclear. and yes, yesterday there were a lot of people out here who were taking pictures, trying to get one last look because it is an incredible sight to see. i'm not encouraging anybody to come down here. the police were really trying to tell people, please get away. because again, that is one of the worst case scenarios if people stay behind, the first responders have to come in here, risk their own lives to get them out. so again, driv
